Retinitis Pigmentosa

Retinitis Pigmentosa and Your Disability Claim

Dabdoub Law Firm Handles Retinitis Pigmentosa Disability Claims Nationwide

Retinitis pigmentosa is a group of rare, genetic disorders that cause progressive vision loss. Over time, cells in the retina break down and deteriorate. Without intervention, the condition can lead to vision loss (blindness).

If you are suffering from retinitis pigmentosa, can no longer fulfill the duties of your occupation, and have a disability insurance policy through your employer or a private plan, Dabdoub Law Firm may be able to help.

We can help you adjust to your medical condition with short-term disability benefits or pursue long-term disability benefits, so you can care for yourself and your family without making your disability worse.

Call us at (800) 969-0488 to explore your legal options during a free consultation.

Understanding Retinitis Pigmentosa

As a group of disorders that affect the retina, retinitis pigmentosa destroys the light-sensitive tissue lining the back of the eye. Typically, the first sign and symptom of retinitis pigmentosa is the loss of night vision, which can become apparent in childhood.

Over time, you may develop blind spots in your peripheral (side) vision or experience tunnel vision. As the disease progresses, you may start losing your central vision, which will impact your ability to read, drive, operate machinery, and recognize faces.

Many adults with retinitis pigmentosa are legally blind, particularly by the time they are 50 or older. Because the condition gets worse over time, however, they may have training and education for an occupation that requires clear central vision. This is especially common in people who do not get a timely diagnosis.

Rarely, retinitis pigmentosa also occurs as part of syndromes that affect other organs and tissues in the body. Usher syndrome, for example, is characterized by vision loss and hearing loss from a young age, and genetic syndromes like Bardet-Biedl syndrome, Refsum disease, and neuropathy, ataxia, and retinitis pigmentosa (NARP) can lead to vision loss and disability.

If these situations sound familiar to you, you may need short-term or long-term disability benefits. Dabdoub Law Firm can help you get them.

Living with Vision Loss

Short-term or long-term disability benefits can help you live with vision loss because they replace your income. Instead of straining to see screens and making your condition worse, you can seek treatment with eye care professionals, train for a new job with occupational therapists, and learn how to live independently with vision loss.

Don’t let the insurance company get away with denying your claim.
